All the Best Quotes

The appeal of quotations is universal. I doubt that there is anyone who has not made use of them at one  time or another –  in a love letter, in a wedding speech, in school and college work, or in a presentation. In this collection you will find quotes covering a wide range of subjects, and by a diverse selection of authors – from the ancient to the most modern.

Use the search box, or the subject and author indexes to browse the collection.

To be apt in quotation is a splendid and dangerous gift. Splendid, because it ornaments a man’s speech with other men’s jewels; dangerous, for the same reason.

Robertson Davies
